“'This is how it will be for all your days: you will be drawn to a place that reveals the sign of the Tsalal - an aspect of the unreal, a forlorn glamor in things - and with your coming the changes will begin. These may go unnoticed for a time, affecting only very small things or greater things in subtle ways, a disruption of forms that you very well know. But other people will sense that something is wrong in that place, which may be a certain house or street or even an entire town. They will go about with uneasy eyes and become emaciated in their flesh, their very bones growing thin with worry, becoming worn down and warped just as the world around them is slowly stripped of whatever seemed real, leaving them famished for the sustenance of old illusions. Rumors will begin to pass among them about unpleasant things they believe they have seen or felt and yet cannot explain - a confusion among the lower creatures, perhaps, or a stone that seems to throb with a faint life. For these are the modest beginnings of the chaos that will ultimately consume the stars themselves, which may be left to crawl within that great blackness no one has ever seen. And by their proximity to your being they will know that you are the source of these changes, that through your being these changes radiate into the world. The longer you stay in a place, the worse it will become.'”
Thomas Ligotti - “The Tsalal”

Thomas Ligotti Online - Nineteenth Anniversary
Feb 08, 2017 - 11:35 AM - by Dr. Locrian
On February 4th, 1998, TLO was born.

Happy Belated Birthday (I forgot AGAIN), Thomas Ligotti Online!

A heartfelt thank you to Brian Poe (aka Dr. Bantham) for his wonderful design, hosting and administrative prowess and to all the members of TLO past and present for making this an online community that continues to stand the test of time.

Finally, thanks to Thomas Ligotti himself, as always.

Here's to nineteen more years of TLO!

Tsang Kin-Wah: The Infinite Nothing
Nov 15, 2016 - 3:30 PM - by qcrisp
I have been apprised of an art installation by the Hong Kong artist Tsang Kin-Wah, which has apparently been influenced by Ligotti. Ligotti is quoted, for instance, in his curatorial statement, here:

Here is a video presenting the installation:

I thought TLOers might find it of interest, even if it's too late, now, to attend, and there would be, anyway, geographical difficulties for most of us.

Watt is a brilliant fiction writer and essayist, and this is sure to be a gem.
